Faith & Work Akron has been in the works for three years. I was looking for a way to have a forum to explore the relationship between discipleship in Christ and my life out in the world - particularly at work. What does it mean to be a Christian at work? How does it inform the decisions, challenges, and triumphs that every job brings? Does God care about the work I do every day that really doesn't seem to have anything to do with church, per se?
Then I discovered the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity's Transforming Work journey. This one-year program seemed to capture the kind of conversation I was looking for and was a perfect fit. Gathering the people for our fellowship has been easy. I found that the more I shared my thoughts about forming this group, the more people reacted with a strong feeling that they, too were eager for this kind of faith/work conversation.
I am excited to say, we have 14 people so far joining the group and they are from many Christian backgrounds. Hold us up in prayer as we begin our year-long adventure on May 17, 2018!
God bless you all,
